Kickstarter Campaign for Mike Quinn: Talk To The Hand – A Memoir

Mike Quinn first worked as a puppeteer for Jim Henson in 1980, before
working on Return as the Jedi as Nien Numb, and helping Henson with Yoda too. His career spans over 35 years including numerous film and TV projects, as well as his recent reprisal as Nein Numb in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. Quinn is now ready to put pen to paper and write his memoirs, sharing his story for a select few to read. The only way you can get to read his story, Talk to the Hand, is to back his Kickstarter campaign which is already 20% funded.

Talk To The Hand!


A Memoir

Born in an unassuming terraced house to a working class family in the south east of England, raised in a difficult, lonely, sometimes terrifying childhood and written off by my educators early on, my calling of puppetry not only saved me from oblivion or worse but skyrocketed me into the bright lights of the entertainment industry and the stuff dreams are made of. Holding nothing back, I chronicle my escape by being mentored by my hero, Muppet creator Jim Henson, later reinventing myself as a character animator at Pixar whilst battling chronic depression and ultimately becoming a performer for a beloved fan favorite legacy character in four Star Wars films.

This is my story.

Coming later this summer, you will be the first to obtain a special edition printing of a signed hard copy of my Autobiography. This will be the only place and time you’ll be able to get this quality hardback limited first edition.

You have just 12 days to go to back this campaign, so take the link below to find out what rewards are available — happy hunting!
